Averatek Announces A-SAP License Agreement With Calumet Electronics


Reading time ( words)

Averatek Incorporated has announced Calumet Electronics as its first A-SAP™ licensee. A-SAP™ is an advanced PCB manufacturing technology that enables feature sizes of 25 microns and below, effectively providing PCB designers with new opportunities to address the challenges of next-generation electronics.

“Averatek’s A-SAP™ process is industry-transforming technology that will allow the U.S. to recapture the leadership position in electronics manufacturing, providing for dramatic reductions in size, weight, and manufacturing complexity, while significantly improving signal integrity and reliability,” said Todd Brassard, COO of Calumet Electronics.

“Calumet Electronics is rapidly moving through the process installation and qualification cycle,” said Haris Basit, CEO of Averatek. “Their PCB manufacturing expertise, in combination with these advanced fabrication capabilities, strongly positions Calumet to support industry leaders as they face growing challenges with increasing density and frequency.”

Averatek’s A-SAP™ is an advanced manufacturing process for printed circuit board fabrication with trace and space widths as narrow as 15 microns. This process can dramatically reduce the area, layer count, and weight of electronics systems as well as provide significant RF benefits. A-SAP™ has been designed to be easily integrated with traditional PCB manufacturing equipment and materials.

The big news in the industry this week was the new bill introduced to the U.S. Congress in support of the PCB manufacturing industry. The Supporting American Printed Circuit Boards Act of 2022, which was introduced by Reps. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Blake Moore (R-UT), incentivizes “purchases of domestically produced PCBs as well as industry investments in factories, equipment, workforce training, and research and development.” The bill is a PCB-oriented complement to the semiconductor-oriented CHIPS Act of 2021.
